Alas, we’ve come to the end of the road with the final HKI entry of 2011 and what better way to end the year then with these not-really-affordable-but-just-gotta-have-it splurge-worthy holiday gifts starting with…
Chi went all out this season with their Limited Edition Holiday Iron Collection ($160, stores only). This sleek chromatic silver iron comes with a red metallic fabric wristlet with sparkling CHI rhinestone dials. Iron also comes in red with silver pouch. This is hot ladies…I’ve got mine!
Is it possible to associate ‘luxe’ with a product that only costs $42? Of course! GloMinerals Star Dust 24K Kit (gloprofessional.com) is a fabulous limited-edition gunmetal ferrul duster brush that gives you an enchanting gloDust 24k application to your face and body to make you look irrestible beyond belief at all of your upcoming holiday parties. What’s always great about Glo’s products are that they treat your skin while simultaneously enhancing it’s appearance because they’re all formulated with Vitamins A,C, E & green tea. 24K Dust comes in gold, silver or bronze.
And Corioliss’s Mini Vintage Dryer ($49, corioliss.com) is HKI’s honorable mention this week. The colorful, lightweight, compact dryer is the perfect stylish travel companion…the only way to travel. It comes in blue floral and black floral color editions.
Travel in style with prestige brand Clé de Peau Beauté’s Synactif Coffret Set. This is the first brand that focuses squarely on strengthening your skin’s lymphatic channel, in other words, unwanted waste and buildup is removed from your skin, much like cleaning out a drain pipe – learn more. And once clean, your skin has renewed vitality and should be kept up with this simple skin care regimen. This set includes soap, softening lotion (replenishes moisture), daytime & night time moisturizers, intensive cream (reduces wrinkles, sagging and dullness, restores clarity) and 32 pieces of cotton. This price tag on this isn’t for the faint of heart – $350, bergdorfgoodman.com. If money isn’t an object, I say go for it.
HKI thinks that Juliette Has a Gun, Calamity J’s Purse Bullet ($75, juliettehasagun.com) is so worth the money because it’s out-of-control sexy and what woman wouldn’t want to have a little secret like this in her purse! The concentrated fragrance oils can be applied discreetly behind your ears, on your wrists and wherever else you see fit and comes inside a weighty, significantly-sized silver bullet – literally. If you’re a woman who likes wearing your boyfriend’s cologne, then you’ll appreciate this edgy fragrance which has hints of Patchouli, Amber & Musk (no fruity or flowery scents) and absolutely no top note. Included are three rechargeable fragrance oils. Incidentally, the fragrance was inspired by the frontierswoman Calamity Jane. Available in four other edgy fragrances.
